Flat Text Editor

The Flat Text Editor is used when working with MARC records.


Cataloguers should be cautious when using the Flat Text Editor and always double check any changes before saving. It is very easy to make significant changes to multiple fields while using the Flat Text Editor.

The text of the MARC record can be edited directly in the Flat Text Editor.



The search filters and format icons in the public catalogue rely on accurate coding in the Leader, 007 and 008 fields. Please see the format filter and icon specifications for Sitka’s Evergreen in the section called “Search Filters and Format Icons”.
